We already use starfall - which I think is great - but want to mix it up a bit. Anyone any good recommedations for 1)reading and 2)basic maths?

DD loved at 5. It's not a freebie, but you can do a free trial to see if it's worth paying for or not.

Our school uses educationcity. We have to pay £2 a year to be able to use it at home and it keeps track of what they are doing at school as well. DD loves it and is impatiently waiting for her new password for it!

On a post the other day someone mentioned the KS1 section of the BBC Bitesize website which looks good so I have bookmarked that for dd to have a go on too.

You could try this.
Lots and lots of positive testimonials so it might be worth a go?

My 7y uses educationcity too; now o the Y3 pages. It is paid for though - she doesn't have it at school.

TBH though lots of sites do educational games for this age - cbeebies, Nick Jr, etc. Plus others. Got to go and get DD from school now but will try and remember some more to post later.

many thanks
BTW, does anyone else use clubpenguin? doesn't look very educational, but my dh has got my dd onto it, and needless to say she is hooked.

my ds 4yo went to computer club at school and came back with a note saying
He said he 'played' on this at the club. We looked at it last night and it has some educational games - haven't been all the way through it though
